The Internationalization of the Securities Markets: Preface to a Symposium

This preface begins by tracing certain of the initial steps taken by the SEC in the internationalization of securities trading. Regulations involving issuers of new securities are discussed in two contexts. First, when foreign private issuers offer securities into the United States, and second, when securities are simultaneously offered in the United States and abroad. The preface concludes by introducing each of the articles in this symposium.
